Ubaldo Jimenez wins 11th

Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez won his 11th game of the season as the Rockies beat the Diamondbacks 3-2 on Sunday.

In the process, Jimenez extended his scoreless innings streak to 33, which is a franchise record. The streak ended on a home run by Connor Jackson in the eighth inning.

The previous franchise record was held by Gabe White, who pitched 29 1/3 scoreless innings in 2000.

I’m just really happy,” Jimenez said (via the Associated Press). “As a starter, you only pitch every five days so it’s so hard, especially when you’re having a season like this. You can’t wait for your next start to come.”

By allowing a two-run homer to Jackson today, Jimenez's ERA jumped to 0.93.
